Regenstrief Institute was founded in 1969 by Indiana industrialist and philanthropist Samuel Regenstrief and his wife Myrtie. Today, more than 60 research scientists and nearly 200 staff members support the vision of innovating, applying and implementing solutions to improve human health, working in such important areas as stroke treatment, diagnosis and treatment of depression, doctor-patient relations, health disparities, nursing home care, brain health, advance care planning, electronic medical records, health information exchange, disease surveillance, social determinants of health, opioids and artificial intelligence applications.

While the proclamation from Governor Holcomb focuses on Regenstrief’s five decades of achievements, it also highlights the institute’s recent collaborative work to develop a dynamic dashboard providing data on COVID-19 cases and trends, as well as continual faculty and staff expertise and support in the effort to address the pandemic in Indiana and beyond.
